Problem description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in socat:

A heap based buffer overflow vulnerability has been found with
data that happens to be output on the READLINE address. Successful
exploitation may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the socat process (CVE-2012-0219).

Under certain circumstances an FD leak occurs and can be misused
for denial of service attacks against socat running in server mode

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
